Bastiaanse Secondary School are the new COPA Coca-Cola® Western Cape Provincial Champions.


Bastiaanse won the Western Cape Provincial Finals of the 2017 edition of the COPA Coca-Cola U15 Football Tournament hosted by Coca-Cola, in conjunction with the South African Schools Football Association (SASFA), at the Robinvale Sports Ground in Atlantis, Cape Town, after beating Robinvale High School 2-0 in the final this past Saturday.


Now in its third year, the campaign’s Which Part Will You Play initiative will see ambassador Simba Marumo, together with a panel of football experts, visit all nine Provinces in search of players that embody and represent the dynamic and unique roles needed to make up a successful team – The Rock, the Heart, the Perfectionist, the Rebel, the Joker, the Impossible, the Machine, the Artist, the Underdog, the Mastermind and the Legend.  Players fitting these characteristics will be selected to form the ‘Which Part Will You Play’ All-Star team, and will be given the opportunity to play a curtain raiser match ahead of the official National Finals tournament. 


Roy-Keane Du Plessis, a talented striker from Robinvale High School was identified as The Machine and will join the ‘Which Part Will You Play’ All-Star team, representing the Western Cape province. Keane, the speedy and explosive attacker, was chosen after showcasing great ball skills and goal-scoring characteristics, as he propelled his team to a runners-up finish.


“I am truly excited to be going to the National Finals and meet up with other young talent from outside my province. I’m grateful for the continued support and encouragement from my teammates and coaches and I believe my school will bounce back strongly in the 2018 edition of the COPA Coca-Cola tournament. I can’t wait to meet my ‘Which Part Will You Play’ team mates”, said a delighted Du Plessis.

COPA Coca-Cola® is a global football development initiative that gives millions of young football fans the opportunity to come together and celebrate their passion for football.


With over 1.3 million teenagers from more than 60 countries taking part, COPA Coca-Cola is recognised globally as the leading grassroots football programme in the world. 


Youngsters and football supporters are urged to support their teams or follow the action on social media using #COPACocaCola for news updates and results.
